Moonlight Mile by Dennis Lehane
Twelve years after the events of Gone, Baby, Gone, Patrick Kenzie is still a private investigator. He's also a desperate man, "Sucking it up doing jobs I don't like for a company I'm not terribly in love with so that eventually I can get hired permanent and we can get insurance and benefits and a paid vacation." He and Angie are married. She's close to getting her doctorate, and they have a four-year-old daughter. But, they're hurting in a bad economy just as everyone else is. He lost his free office as a consequence of the church reforms in Boston following their failure to deal with bad priests. Patrick is feeling the same desperation as so many people in the bad economy, worrying about money and mortgage payments.
And, we still love Patrick Kenzie and Angie Gennaro. So, thank you, Dennis Lehane, for Moonlight Mile. Here's a fan who accepts Moonlight Mile as a satisfying conclusion to a beloved series.
